THUGS AND THE WOMEN WHO LOVE ‘EM - Where do you go when the hood is all you know? That’s the question facing four friends as they navigate the sex and crime filled streets of the only home they’ve ever known.
Four different perspectives from four extraordinary women who’ve built a sisterhood through some very difficult times. Now, one by one, each of them will be asked to choose between the men they love and the life they want. Are they really four strong, independent, black women ready to write their own story and be the stars of their own lives? Or are they destined forever to be nothing more than co-stars in somebody else’s script... nothing more than Thugs and the Women Who Love ‘Em.

LUDOVICO EINAUDI - The most celebrated European pianist and composer in contemporary classical music, Einaudi has contributed to the soundtracks of major films including Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan and Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar. A master craftsman and performer, he’s also become a concert sensation. He was the first classical pianist to reach the top 15 on the UK album charts, and last year he expanded his sonic purview with Elements, a project for piano, electronics, and orchestra that evokes the natural world with music that germinates from cellular melodic fragments - music he brings to this performance.

Called “one of Glass' most lyrical, moving works” by Billboard, his Dracula score was commissioned in 1999 for the Universal home video release of the film, employing keyboards played by the composer, conducting and additional keyboards by longtime Glass collaborator Michael Reisman, and strings by the Kronos Quartet. Formed by violinist David Harrington in 1973, Kronos is the most highly regarded performing ensemble devoted to contemporary composition.

BUDDY GUY - An ace session player for Chess Records throughout the 1960s who backed Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson and Koko Taylor, this blues guitar legend came to define second-generation Chicago blues with his wildly exuberant performances and incendiary guitar playing. His influence was profound across the Atlantic, where British blues lovers like Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page absorbed his style. A testament to his lasting influence, Guy received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2015 GRAMMY awards and was a 2005 inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Buddy Guy remains an iconic force on guitar whose incandescent solos reveal the searing, uninhibited soul of the blues.
